  • 1. APPLICATION OF BARCODE TECHNOLOGY IN LIBRARIES BY Dr. K. SATYANARAYANA LIBRARIAN KNOWLEDGE RESOURCE CENTRE GITAM UNIVERSITY VISAKHAPATNAM
  • 2.  
  • 3. History
    • super Markets in U.S.A
    • Bernard Silver and Norman Joseph Wood Land-1948
    • Commercial Application in 1960
    • plessey light pen system
    • Facts for Success
    • 1.Bar code labels are cheap
    • 2.It may be read with great accuracy, using fair priced reading devices
    • 3.Standard symbologies have been developed
    • 4.User friendly Technology
  • 4.
    • So many items in the market are using barcode technology
    • A Barcode is created with black bars followed by white spaces
    • So barcode is series if 1s and 0s representing numbers and letters
    • Depending on the nature of Information black bars and white spaces will be created by the software
    INTRODUCTION
  • 5. Typical structure of a barcode
    • Bi-directional Symbologies
    • Left to right or vice versa
  • 6. Need for Barcode Technology in Libraries
    • Check in check out and Renewal of Reading material is a time consuming and laborious process
    • Arranging tickets in a classified order is time tedious job
    • Tickets trays occupy space
    • Reservation is a time consuming process
    • To know the status of book
  • 7. TYPES OF BARCODES
    • ONE DIMENSIONAL
    • Consists of black bars and white spaces
    • Requires ordinary barcode scanners
    • TWO DIMENSIONAL
    • Composed of grid of light and dark modules
    • Requires 2D camera
  • 8. AREAS OF BARCODE TECHNOLOGY APPLICATION
    • Airline industry
    • Animal husbandry
    • Automotive industry
    • Banking
    • defense
    • distribution
    • electronic industry
  • 9. AREAS OF BARCODE TECHNOLOGY APPLICATION (Contd)
    • highway agencies
    • libraries
    • manufacturing
    • mining
    • pharmaceutical industry
    • departmental stores
  • 10. AREAS OF BARCODE TECHNOLOGY APPLICATION (Contd)
    • forensic
    • government agencies
    • health agencies
    • Passport offices
    • telecommunication industry
    • book publishers
    • wall paper industry and
    • ware housing
  • 11. B AR CODE APPLICATIONS:
    • Asset Management
    • Access Control
    • Cataloguing
    • Check-in/out
    • Compliance labeling
    • Document Tracking
    • Electronic Forms Automation
  • 12. B AR CODE APPLICATIONS (Contd):
    • Finger Print Identification
    • Factory Floor data Collection
    • Item Tracking
    • Inspection , Maintenance or quality control
    • Inventory and warehousing Control
    • Item Tracking equipment
    • Job costing
  • 13. Industries using bar codes:
    • Apparel Industry Applications
    • Automotive industry applications
    • Chemical Industry Applications
    • Construction Industry Applications
    • Government Applications
    • Library Science Applications
  • 14. Industries using barcodes (Contd):
    • Manufacturing applications
    • Package Industry Applications
    • Pharmaceutical Applications
    • Publishing Industry Applications
    • Retail/ whole sale Applications
  • 15. CONTENT OF A BARCODE
    • Information of the product will be transmitted into numeric or alphanumeric form with the help of computer software.
    • The content and size of the bar code will depend on the data message, symbology, dimension, and bar code height.
  • 16. CONTENT OF A BARCODE
    • The software will convert the information into black bands and white spaces.
    • While printing the bar code labels the stationery and environment in which the labels will be used should be taken into consideration
  • 17. TYPES OF BARCODE PRINTERS
    • For printing the bar codes developed by the soft wares varieties of printers are available.
    • Dot Matrix Printer
  • 18. TYPES OF BARCODE PRINTERS
    • Thermal Transfer Printer
    • Laser Printer
  • 19. TYPES OF BARCODE PRINTERS
    • Ink Jet Printer
  • 20. Important points in choosing the printer
    • Print quality
    • Connectivity
    • Speed
    • Easy to use
    • Size and weight
    • Environment
    • price
  • 21. SCANNING AND DECODING
    • Scans and measures the presence and absence of light on the bars for reading the data
    • Starts and ends with specified marks on the barcode
    • Size is proportionate to the information available on the material
  • 22. TYPES OF SCANNERS
    • 1. CCD Scanners
    • 2. Laser Scanners
    • 3. Long range Hand held scanners
    • 4. Omni directional Scanner
    • 5. Fixed scanners.
    • 6. Flat bed scanners
  • 23. Auto ID in Libraries:
    • Flag character is to be used to avoid confusion between the user ID and document ID numbers
    • Barcode labels are to be laminated to protect them from the atmospheric changes
  • 24. Application of barcode technology for stock verification
    • Data capture machine with hand held terminal
    • Dumping data on to the computer
    • Generation database with Accession numbers
    • Comparison with database generated by by the data of capture machine.
    • The mismatch will reveal the findings of the stock verification.
    • This will save a lot of time and laborious process in the stock verification.
    • This can be completed with in few days.
  • 25. Benefits of barcode applications
    • ACCURACY:
    • accurate and reliable Human operator will commit undetected error for every 300 input.
    • Adopting bar coding technologies will improve input by factor of 10,000 times
    • ECONOMICS:
    • bar code labels can be produced in volumes, reducing the cost for user.
  • 26. Benefits of barcode applications
    • SPEED:
    • Bar code or radio frequency tag carrying several hundred or even thousand characters of data can be captured while the object is on the move at high speed.
    • For example motorway toll, or firm objects on a moving conveyor belt
    • CONVENIENCE:
    • Auto ID technologies offer convenience and versatility
    • user friendly in operation
    • easily connected to wide range of computers and control equipment
